“The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself. When the government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a full adult human responsible for her own choices.”
― Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade. States now have the right to make abortions illegal.
At Indiegogo, we share the sadness, shock, and outrage at this disturbing turn of events that threaten the safety and well-being of child-bearing women all over the country.
As a company with a majority of women in leadership positions, we stand in solidarity with women and support their right to choose. We’ve always strived to empower women to take full agency of their lives. This doesn’t just apply to their dreams and business ideas, but every aspect of their being.
From Indiegogo CEO Becky Center:
Along with 500+ other companies and organizations, we’ve signed Don’t Ban Equality. This initiative underscores and recognizes that comprehensive reproductive health care — which includes abortion access — is central to gender equity and women’s full participation in the workplace. We encourage you to join us in taking action towards protecting women’s reproductive freedom. Thank you for all that you do for women everywhere!
